Driving home from dinner last night, I spotted a car with the same number plate. My number plate starts with the numbers 37, so I struck up a conversation with CH.
"Did you know that when we first met, you were only 37? Now you're 43. We've been together for 6 years! At that time, I didn't think we could last for a year."
CH said, "Oh??"
"Imagine if we had a child, she would be starting primary one in January. I'm sure we would have a daughter because you have 6 nieces and no nephews!"
Of course CH pooh-poohed my logic. "It has nothing to do with genes lah, it's all random!'
"But still... cannot be so coincidental right?" I said.
"My brother has 3 daughters and my sis has 3, it not that each one has 6."
What started out as a romantic conversation ended up being a scientific one. I ended up saying, "Anyway I'm too old to have kids now."
It has been 6 long years since we first met. We were slim and athletic with a head of natural brown hair. Now that we're kinda pudgy, I'm glad we met when he was 37.
